If you never got a chance to get in on the ground floor of the Brooklyn Bridge, Scissorhead Roket tips us that the wall is available:
A man who spent $30 million building a 3-mile wall between the US and Mexico is looking for someone to buy it
Last year, at a cost of $30 million, Tommy Fisher finished building a private 3-mile wall at the US-Mexico border in Texas. Now the 51-year-old is searching for someone to buy it, Bloomberg reported.
It’s looking to be a tough sell, especially since President Joe Biden has rolled back construction on his predecessor’s wall (though Biden’s chief of homeland security did say in April that the administration might try to fill “gaps” in the existing barrier). Just last month, Biden returned $2.2 billion to the military that had been allocated to building a wall under the Trump administration.
According to Bloomberg, Fisher’s wall, which runs along the Rio Grande, consists of “15,000 18-foot-tall steel bollards” spaced 5 inches apart.
Fisher told Bloomberg he started thinking about building the wall as a personal project when Donald Trump got elected in 2016. A Republican donor and frequent Fox News contributor, Fisher told the outlet: “I was like: ‘This would be really fun. This would be a project that would be remembered, like the Hoover Dam.'”
Oh, Fisher’s wall will be remembered.
